    What do you think are his best attributes and things that could be better?

    Unfortunately those photos are not much use for.evaluating his conformation......he's a pretty color is about the best answer I can offer at the moment. I would go out and brush him up so you can do a proper set of confo shots and repost.

    I guess the real question is: What makes him a better stud than gelding? What are you hoping to pass along-and please don't say "color".

    Confo isn't bad. Nice back end and front as well and his color is beautiful. I do agree with franknbeans, however. What would make him a great breeding stud? If you plan on using him for breeding, I would definitely get a start on training in some field or another because (taking it from a close, personal aquaintance's experiences) not many people are willing to pay to breed to a stallion just for color or bloodlines even.
    Again, he is a beautiful horse.

    Honestly my opinion is he would make a great gelding. I'll admit, in the grand scheme of things I'm pretty snobby about studs and without a lot of training and accolades I can't see one being bred even if he's conformationally and genetically awesome. He's a cute guy, no doubt, but focus on a career for him and really think about keeping him a stud or gelding.

    He's actually my moms horse and she's had several foal crops from him, he was going to be shown but never was due to an Injury that laid him up In the barn for two years. He has a great mind though and passes it On to all his foals

    Like I stated in other posts on breeding. With the economy as it is breeding more horses is just going to hurt the industry even more. Unless you have a Top athletic stud with great blood lines great attitude and a demand for it I would geld before I would breed. And I know there is not a huge demand for paints and QHs just so many out there. But he is pretty for winter condition with a good grooming and muscling up he would be a good looker. But not stud worthy.. JMO

    Just my oppinion, The OP asked what people thought of his confo, not if they thought he should be bred. I like his color. Nice hip on him. I would like to see better photos.
